Have to be Downtown Los Angeles by 8.15 tomorrow morning, just so I can ask what has happened to the FBI's background investigation into my teenage daughter. When we interviewed for green cards last November we learned on that day that the rules had changed - again - and that, Yes, she did now require an FBI background check before she'd receive her card. That would be the same type of check my son and I had earlier been subjects of, but my daughter had been exempted from because of her age. Haven't heard word one since, and her work permit is due to expire end of next month just as she, finally, has become old enough for part-time work.

Mustn't grumble. Still: to be there by 8.15 we'll need to leave here before 7am, which means we'll arrive there around 7.30. Leave any later and we'll get caught in the morning "rush" - was ever a word so wrong? - and won't arrive until after 9.

All of which is rather a whiney way to tell you I won't be posting until later tomorrow, if then. Still chasing that same feching bug for work too, which has leapt out of its regular orbit into the surreal.

You know, back in the day, they used to pretty much sell Green Cards in the classified section of the Economist.
You just had to deposit X amount of money in some American bank.
This is true.

This sounds like a scary thing. Scary because of the total inpredictability of the current version of the FBI.
Will you be dealing with the competent efficient version circa 1950, or the post 1990 one? Good luck to you and to your daughter!
